Is it Fruity as a Nutcake, or Nutty as a Fruitcake?

Who cares! Ya' got your nuts and your fruit, who can argue with that? But we're here to talk about fabric..

Basic Grey, the makers of last Christmas's blockbuster hit, Figgy Pudding; is back at again for the holidays.

Reminiscent of it's predecessor, Fruitcake is a fun filled collection that is all that represents the holiday season. Ornaments, snowflakes, holly berries, pine needles, snowmen, stripes- it's all here!

Click here to take a little peek.

Several items are available now as a pre-shipment at I have a feeling this collection will go fast! So don't wait!

Fabric and Flame Don't Mix!

A couple months ago, a friend introduced me to a wonderful flameless "candle" by Scentsy, and I fell in love. Scentsy offers a flameless wax burners and scented tarts that will do nothing but leave you wanting more. And their beautiful too! From classic to urban to artsy, there is a warmer to fit everyone's decor. And then let's talk about the wax! Now, I do consider myself to be some-what of a scent connoisseur, have a nose like a hound dog- and can spot a fake, icky scent a mile away. But these scents can't be topped! I have tried everything from Yankee to Gold Canyon to the little candle at the country store and I have never come across something as delightful and realistic as these scents. I immediately knew I wanted to offer them at Burgundy Buttons! Upon investigation, I found that I couldn't actually offer them at my store, but had to become an independent consultant and then offer a link from my store, so that's what I did. (see link at the side of my blog and at Burgundy Buttons)

I personally enjoy the Bakery Collection as there is nothing more inviting than the smell of a warm sticky cinnamon bun! But the French lavender is very well suited for the bedroom. There are just so many to love.

This month's special is this lovely opulent warmer "Victoria" and a very fresh scent "Spring Clean". Get them for a reduced price during the month of March!

Spring clean is as refreshing as a cool breeze and morning dew blended with orange blossom, crisp white florals, and a whisper of sheer musk.

Can't decide on your favorite a scent?  Check out the multi pack and select 3-6 scents to start with at a special multi-pack price.

Start your Mother's Day Project Now!

She gave birth to you, burped you, bathed you, changed your diaper and then real dirty work started!

We did it!!  Or should I say YOU did it!!

Remember that little bit of Burgundy Love I ask you to send on over to Kate Spain?  Well the love was felt and she sent a big hunka hunk of Kate Love back. 

Kate wrote:

She also posted this on my blog..

"hey! aww, thanks for all the BB love. Just like Leah said, you ROCK! But come on, Leah, i'm no Greek God...not even close (though i sure do like the sound of it..especially if it includes superpowers). Sheesh, i can barely keep a consistent 1/4" seam allowance! I'm just someone trying to make the world a little brighter each day (like all of you). Don't forget to send/post pics of projects you make w/Verna! It's so fun to see all the creative ways people use the same fabric. enjoy! hugs, kate"

Thank you everyone for sharing the Burgundy Love!

Not sure about you, but I am keeping my eyes peeled for her upcoming line, Fandango!  Nope, not a movie ticket but I bet it will sure be deserving of an Oscar!

Now, as promised...two Verna charm packs are going to lucky responder Jenny from Fort Wayne, Indiana! Check out Jenny's blog and be inspired by her cute little fabric Easter eggs and her delightful entry entitled "Eva's Block".

Jenny- email me at to claim your little piece of Kate Love today!

Tie One On for National Quilt Day

National Quilt Day is March 20th!  The National Quilt Association has created a pattern to help you show your love for quilting.  Part of the tradition is to dig into that scrap bin and use what's on hand for your new treasure!

Don't know anyone? It's OK..

  • If you live near a military base, contact special services to donate your quilt
  • Give this special gift to a family of a soldier serving overseas
  • Donate this gift to a special child struggling with a parent serving overseas
  • Contact a local church to see if there is a congregation member serving in a war zone

So many ways to give!  So many ways to show some Burgundy Love!
